Obama’s Next Little Idea: Punctuation
TalkingSides.com ^ | 10/27/12 | CaroleL

After four years of broken promises, failed economic policies and a foreign policy in tatters; President Barack Obama has come up with a new and exciting idea to save his presidency: an exclamation point. According to a campaign spokeswoman, Team Obama has replaced the period at the end of "Forward" on placards and banners with an exclamation point that reflects "the stakes in this election and energy at our events."

Focusing on ridiculously small things like Big Bird and binders made his campaign a national laughing stock so there's little surprise that their next strategy would be a tiny thing. Why answer tough questions on Libya and the economy when you can pin your hopes on a change in punctuation?

Ironically that exclamation point is appropriate for the president's re-election campaign but not in the way they intended it to be. It conveys a certain frantic desperation that makes sense given Mr. Obama's plummeting job approval rating and Republican Mitt Romney's 51% to 45% lead among likely swing state voters.

Obama must have been watching Free Republic where a dozen exclamation points is considered by many better than one!

What the Obama “forward” really means:

Can you see the association?

Forward!
Hillary!

I mean, given that Hillary made the exclamation point connected to her name, and Obama is tanking... what would that exclamation point mean to a Rat?

Not that Hillary or her people are behind adding that exclamation point now, mind you...

See, in political symbolism, the finger pointing/wagging upwards (straight or angled) means only one thing: islamic prayer.

The administration, which has shown lack of responsible leadership, has taken America backwards with their failed policies for the past four years. It is no wonder that they now need signs that say forward. The only thing is, they have no plan to take us forwards. Another four years of Barack Obama and Joe Biden would be another four years backwards. Democrats gave a pass to this empty chair president, looked the other way while he was out playing golf or campaigning, spending America’s hard earned $$$ on pleasures for his personal gain, lying to the American people, covering up his mistakes, spending outrageous amounts of money on travel, passing laws that Nancy Pelosi says “We have to pass it so we can find out what is in it!”, building and repairing mosques with American tax dollars, failure in Benghazi leading to the death of four Americans,etc. etc. etc.

And now…the disgusting filthy ads promoted by the liberal left (which some of us who rarely watch TV have only heard about here on FR) is classless and disgusting behavior / campaigning.

God save America. May God restore America to her greatness and give us respectable men for president and vice president.

For one to be an honorable and responsible leader with wisdom and truth, one needs God’s truth. Those of us who are Christians, will need to continue praying for Romney and Ryan as our new leaders.

Here are some amazing scriptures regarding leadership. If you can, look this up in the Bible so you can read the entire chapter.

Joshua 1 (excerpt)
New King James Version (NKJV)
God’s Commission to Joshua

After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, it came to pass that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying…. No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. 6 Be strong and of good courage, for to this people you shall divide as an inheritance the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. 7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. 9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

God really does want to help us and guide us in everything.

Scripture: Romans 12 (NKJV)
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Eph. 3:20)

The Amplified Bible translation of this verse says God “…is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].”

I pray God will move on all who call themselves Christians to live out 2 Chronicles 7:14:
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Sorry to the Poster for all these posts having to be removed. I thought my computer wasn’t working so I kept pressing post. And accidently posted 5 extra times! So I asked the kind moderator if he/she would remove them so you would not have to be burdened with unnecesary reading since my post was long already!

Thanks to the moderator and thanks to FR for giving us a place to blog with like minded conservatives.
